Using Lean to produce renewable energy products will keep costs low, make the investment of capital more efficient, provide product in the shortest possible lead time, and ensure the continued growth of the industry. Using Lean will drive cost out of the products/processes allowing more conversion to renewable energy for every dollar spent. Some renewable energy manufacturing companies are using some Lean tools, but much more can be done to reduce the waste in manufacturing these products.

The Reasons for Renewable Lean
If your business is a renewable energy manufacturing company and you have not begun the implementation of Lean, begin tomorrow. If your company has an implementation in progress, redouble your efforts, extend pull outside to the supply base and design the waste out of all of the business processes. The national energy infrastructure and the planet needs the energy infrastructure to be changed to renewable energy as completely and quickly as possible. We need the jobs and we need the growth in the economy that Renewable Lean can create.
